More than 80% of hotel toilet paper in the U.S. comes from foreign sources, according to a new report from the Federal Trade Commission.
The report, issued Tuesday, found that the majority of hotel-supply companies in the country do not comply with the federal minimum wage and other federal rules on labor and employment.
The FTC said that it is a “public safety threat” to consumers to have to travel to a hotel and have to pay a higher price for their toiletries.
The report recommends the FTC establish minimum wage guidelines for hotel- supply companies to protect consumers from the “toxic ingredients” that can cause illness and death. “
The manufacturers of those items do not have adequate information on the safety of their products to help consumers understand what is safe and what is not safe.”

It recommends that hotels and other hotel supply companies make sure that their products are tested for contaminants.
The report recommends that hotel supply businesses be required to offer free samples for consumers who want to know how their toiletry is made and to provide those free samples to consumers in stores.
“Hotel supply businesses must provide free samples of their toilet products and other consumer products to customers who request samples,” the FTC report said.
“Consumers who request free samples should be informed that these free samples will not be returned or discarded.
The companies must also provide free products to employees who request them.”Read more
